FBLA GoFundMe for States

FBLA needs YOU

FBLA on Wink News

WINK NEWS FEATURE (Reporter: Rob Spicker; Producer: Anastasia Snetkova): MYERS, Fla. Thousands of America’s future business leaders are heading off to California this summer to compete in the 2017 National Leadership Conference, and a dozen students from Southwest Florida’s own Riverdale High School will be there to match wits with the very best. Two of the students who will be competing, Miranda Sosa and Malia Williams, joined us in the studio today (May 1, 2017) to tell us more about the event and the school’s fundraising effort to help make it all happen." ~ Wink News, www.WinkNews.com

Riverdale FBLA advances to Nationals

3/27/17: Riverdale FBLA brings home wins, advances to Nationals

Riverdale sophomores swept States, with one senior win, and in most cases, they beat Florida juniors and seniors across Florida (4,000 of them!) Thanks to everyone who has taught them and supported them along the way. Special thanks to a great coach, Ryan White, and two of the best chaperones in the world, Joan Starr and Ella Grady. Florida FBLA knew Riverdale was in the house!

John Messer received a “Leader” level Business Achievement Award.

Riverdale was also recognized as a Gold Seal Chapter, and was honored for contributions to the March of Dimes and American Cancer Society.

 

This wouldn’t have happened without the support of Ryan White, assistant adviser, who gave one of our students a promise card based on last year’s keynote speaker that he would coach a state win. Joan Starr and former Raider Ella Grady were the best chaperones and gave so much support to our 38 students as they navigated winning, losing, and being Raiders who chose success. Also, please congratulate Steele Spinosa for being a president who truly epitomizes leadership.

2016 DISTRICT COMPETITION RESULTS

Magic happens when we all pull together and Riverdale excelled at the FBLA District Leadership Conference on January 26, 2016. We had 40 first place wins, 13 second place, and 10 third place wins. This was packaged with a great motivational speaker in Jeff Becker, job tips from Brooke Weinberg (my daughter), a dazzling organizational triumph by Ryan White and a lot of judges. Our young adults were the real stars.
Thanks to Cathleen Morgan, Cindy Sentes and her husband, Wayne Adams, Beverly Spinosa, Richard Siggs, Mary Ellen, Chris Stephens, Andrina Denison, Mrs. M&M, Kristen Furbay, Ruben Ruiz, Charlie Flores, Beverly Blalock and husband, the Business Department, Eric Greenblatt, Ms. Ludwig, John Roszell, Ms. Joan Starr, and Mr. Cook. The IB docents were awesome. Huge thanks to our teachers and staff who mentored, coached, encouraged and supported us.
